14 Funky Fly Fresh Accessories For Friday


SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM

It’s Aloha Day (R.I.P. IZ) at work today, and we were treated to our usual Free Breakfast Friday. But I have a bone to pick: Were this an authentic Aloha Day, the break room would have been filled with the sweet sweet smells of grilled Spam, sticky rice and ketchup, rather than the usual aroma of Hot Pockets and Activia. Oh well. In spite of this cultural faux pas, we still added a whopping 14 new accessories onto AutoAnything.com. Sneak a peak:

Rhino Rack Ski & Snowboard Rack

  • Feature: These roof ski & snowboard racks from Rhino Rack carry up to six pairs of skis or 4 snowboards.
  • Benefit: If you always drive around with your Burton, you’ll have at least some justification for continuing to wear that fleece jester cap, even though your friends and coworkers really know that you’re just a raging Phish-head.

Rhino Boat Loader

  • Feature: Rhino Racks boat loader automatically loads and unloads a boat onto your roof rack.
  • Benefit: Makes boat thievery a lot gentler on your hernia.

Rhino-Rack Side Boat Loader

Rhino-Rack Cargo Bag

  • Feature: Carries a grip of gear on your roof, keeping it protected from the elements.
  • Benefit: Strikes terror in your children after you threaten to stuff the next one who screams into the time-out roof cargo bag.

Softride Top Tube Bike Frame AdapterUnlike more common cosmetic enhancements, adding a top tube won’t clear up your wrinkles, inhibit you from showing emotion or drain your wallet. But, using one of these Softride bike rack accessories changes its look and functionality all for less than $30—no risks involved.

Wrockit Wrench Open-End Ratchet WrenchesOr, as Scooby-Doo would call them, Wrockit Wrench Ropen-Rend Ratchet Wrenches. These ingenious tools combine the rapid-tightening of a ratchet with the convenience of a wrench. A geneticist would call it a chimera.

Clingo Universal Hands Free PodiumThe difference that separates the Clingo hands free podium from most lecture podiums is that this one doesn’t tend to result in sweaty palms, cracking voices and a roomful of people being pictured in their underwear. But seriously, folks. These deluxe mobile electronics holders are the perfect addition to your assortment of desktop distractions.

Clingo Parabolic Sound SphereEven if geometry was never your strong point, you’re sure to appreciate how Clingo uses parabolas and spheres to create this stylish sound system. It’s both a natural amplifier for your iPhone, iPod or other portable MP3 player, and it’s a helmet in a pinch.

Clingo Universal Car Vent MountYour vents could be spewing out the coldest of air, but your new vent-mounted Clingo mobile electronics holder is still going to look hot in your ride.

Gorilla Net Cargo NetJust as Tarzan’s jungle canopy provides security for the creatures of the rainforest, the Gorilla Net Cargo Net provides security for the contents of your truck bed. The only way to keep your stuff more secure than with these cargo nets & tie-downs would be if you trained an actual gorilla to lay in your truck bed and hold everything down with her heft.

Tripledge Wiper BladesThese Tripledge wipers are so thorough, even Prince Akeem Joffer would be impressed.

Tripledge Wiper Blades

Tripledge Green Wiper BladesThese are the first windshield wipers deemed safe for septic tanks, plastic pipes and municipal water systems. We’re talking greener-then-Woody-Harrelson’s-cigarettes green, and that’s mighty green, baby. Thanks, Tripledge.

Armor All Ultra Flex Wiper Blades

Armor All Premium Wiper BladesJust like “extreme” and “supreme;” adding “premium” to a product name gives it the nebulous distinction of being better. But, these Armor All wiper blades are pretty premium—they leave a thin film of water-repellent goo on your windshield, so water beads up and wipes away easier.

Armor All Premium Wiper Blades

Armor All Ultra Flex Wiper BladesYou can juice up, shave your armpits, get a spray tan, apply a glistening sheen of posing oil and flex like Lou Ferrigno. But, it won’t clear your windshield like these travel accessories from Armor All. They’re curved like a banana, which keeps them pressed against your windshield for more powerful wipes.

AEM Replacement Air Intake FilterMom was right: generic-brand dextro is just as good as Robitussin in purple drank, and AEM replacement air intake filters are just as effective as K&N air filters in air intake systems.

New air intakes cometh, plus a few more new products


I hate waiting. That’s why I have a love/hate relationship with the holidays. On the one hand, I love that there’s a pile of gifts waiting for me under the tree. On the other hand, I hate knowing that there’s a pile of gifts waiting for me under the tree but all I can do is poke and stare at them until the big day. Advent calendars are like chocolate torture!

You hate waiting, too. Luckily, the wait is over for the mystery air intakes. Ladies and gentlemen, shake hands with Takeda (and a few others from Rugged Ridge and Rampage products).
